BarryB, It won't hurt to try this:

Click Start>Run then copy & paste or type in:

regsvr32 /i shell32

Click OK

Note that the spacing is important.

Yes, the short cut(s) do exist and yes I did re-register the shell32. Same problem, windows opens the "Open With" dialogue box instead of opening the folder.
